Morgan and Peter kicked off my 2016 wedding season and I was so excited to be a part of their special day. Morgan is the picture of class and beauty. If you don’t believe me, just take a peek at this gorgeous bride (also, she has had 3 babies which only seems to have made her all the more beautiful!).
Peter is Scottish; therefore, his heritage was a big part of the ceremony (which was so lovely!). After exchanging their rings, Morgan and Peter had the Scottish ceremony of handfasting as a part of their union. Handfasting is where the couple joins hands and a brightly coloured rope, cord or ribbon is wound around their joined hands as a symbol of their agreement to spend their lives together. which is literally where the saying “tying the knot’ comes from. Now ya know! So lovely! Between the Scottish tartan blankets on the back of their chairs, lots of Scotsmen in kilts, and professional bagpiping–there was lots of Scottish love going on through the day!
Their wedding and reception took place at Ruthven Park in Cayuga, which is actually where we also took their engagement photos. The beautiful old buildings and gorgeous grounds make it a great location for a wedding. Plus, having the wedding and reception in the same location is a great option as travel time between locations doesn’t eat up a large part of your day!
Congratulations, Morgan and Peter! It was a pleasure to witness your love!
